Digital Stereotactic Biopsy Option
For GLORY Mammography Systems

  • The DIGIMAM stereotactic option offers a fast non-surgical alternative for breast biopsy.
  • DIGIMAM eliminates the need for a separate stereotactic unit and expands the versatility of the mammography system.
  • Performing in near real-time, DIGIMAM results in more accurate procedures with less patient discomfort.
  • Image enhancement, data manipulation and on-line data storage are just a few of the utilities contributing to enhanced image quality and expedited stereotactic procedures.
